complicated. president obama, we've got this big debt crisis. president obama, two things -- number 1, months ago, he put out a detailed plan. it's in print, and it's online, of how to resolve this fiscal crisis. no. 2, the republicans said we are not going to deal with it. we will take seven weeks off. we will have an election and let the people decide. president obama went out in front of the american people. there was one issue, the central issue. it wasn't the war in iraq iran's nuclear possibility of iran getting nuclear weapons it wasn't peace in the middle east. it wasn't immigration reform. the number 1 was issue was president obama said very clear, we want the wealthiest two percents of americans to pay more in tax after having 12 years of a special tax break, which was only supposed to be temporary. if you say yes vote for me. mitt romney says, no, we are going to caudle, protect that top 2%. we are not going to raise their taxes. so if you say no, vote for me. that was a choice. the american people overwhelmingly, overwhelmingly, margin of 5 million, voted for president oba

bent in the debt but it would heard middle class businesses. >> the g.o.p. could be risking a civil war over this issue. it does not look like obama is ready to cave. if that forces republican leaders to compromise staunch conservatives will likely rebel. more "bill press" up after the break. we will be right back. exciting issue. from financial regulation, iran getting a nuclear bomb, civil war in syria, fraud on wall street, destruction of medicare and medicaid. there are real issues here. having been a governor, i know that trade-offs are tough. things everyday exploding around the world that leave no shortage for exciting conversations. i want our viewer to understand why things have happened. at the end of the show, you know what has happened, why its happened and more importantly, what's going to happen tomorrow. at cepacol we've heard people are going to extremes to relieve their sore throats. oh, okay, you don't need to do that. but i don't want any more of the usual lozenges and i want new cooling relief! ugh. how do you feel? now i'm cold. hmm. this is a better choice. new

surplus and we might need the money. that's exactly what the case is today. president obama extended them for two years. i wish he hadn't but he did. why? because it was the price he paid for getting the debt ceiling increase and for extending unemployment benefits for millions of americans. well now everything has changed. now we can -- we simply can no longer afford welfare for the rich. it is handing millionaires and billionaires a great big fat like $150,000 check a year. we can't afford it. we don't have the money. peter, as you pointed out, this is the number one issue in the election. the president made it clear at every appearance. if you want tax cuts, if you want the wealthiest of americans to pay a little more in taxes their fair share vote for me. if you want to give them a free ride, vote for romney. it's over. this issue has been decided. john boehner total total joke. i think the president -- i mean should just reject this thing out of hand and say we would rather have -- okay, here's my vote. do you agree? 1-866-55-press. my vote is no deal. no deal rather than a bad deal.

meeting with leadership staff said we are not moving on the debt seal, not moving on tax rates and entitlement savings. you have to do something. the "new york times" reported this morning that boehner and obama -- boehner has requested private negotiations with obama. i don't know what -- i am not sure why that's important at the that you can on the phone privately. they are looking for a way out they have signaled some private openness if they could kick it up to 37% instead of 39% if they get some entitlement savings they could sell. >> the president would get 39-6 for the upper income folks with doing nothing and no entitlement cuts by doing nothing? >> right. >> it would be a deal. you would guess the president would want some sort of package and wouldn't want to go over the cliff. it would be politically and substantively. this is what republican aids say. he has the chance to do something big. if he come our way i am not negotiating this. >> you need to get something in order to do something. we are getting ahead of ourselves. this is the conversation that we have to have. t

years out, everybody was saying oh obama, toast. he is toast. no way he could get re-elected. he's been such a disaster. you know, couldn't get the debt ceiling increase without giving in on the bush tax cuts and didn't do anything about anything, didn't do anything about immigration reform and da-da-da-da. he was considered absolutely certain to lose. people were writing him off as a one-term president and the speculation about who was going to take his place and plus people were saying they would never be as excited in 2012 as they were in 2008. so it was all of that, you know kind of scenario that was built going into this presidential election and, of course in the last couple of weeks of the election, the romney people were saying saying, we're going to win. no doubt about it. we are going to win. not only that, we are going to win big. look at the size of our crowd. look at the enthusiasm. everywhere romney went, people were turning out, national polls were tied. romney was ahead by one point or two points. it was in the bag for romney. the media bought into it hook line, and sink
